    Man, the disgusting depraved things I would do for a new Vampire D movie. There were tons of novels, most of which were really really messed up. Like Bloodlust? Tons of incest.

    Looks ok. Needs more chandeliers tho.

    As a big Castlevania fan I need to ask this question... Why is this a thing now? Castlevania games always had same-ish and simplistic shit story "guy needs to kill Dracula, because Dracula is an asshole". The series never had any deep or interesting characters. Let's not start pretending that it has deep lore either. Castlevania was always about the gameplay, so I really cannot see this thing working.

    It started with Symphony of the night actually bringing a some lore to the game. The 3d iterations did the same thing (lament of innocence, curse of darkness) then lords of shadow kinda threw a "hahaha fuck you!" Wrench in everything so now I guess that is how the lore should be or whatnot.

    Really hoping for them to shoehorn in that "What is a man" line

    A decent 4 episode first season. Hope they come out with another season somewhere down the end of the year. Would love to see Alucard and co. duke it out with Herr Dracula Tepes

    Just finished the first episode, it was pretty good. I dig big daddy Drac's powers, and his preferred method of communication: the giant flaming visage.

    Also lots of gore. It's pretty much everything Castlevania.

    Loved it. Ennis knows the source and can churn out a tight yarn. They can fuck off with a '4 season' opener though.

    My fave thing was the cheesy dialogue (all villians must have an English accent) and wink at the camera moments. Like that bit where Trevor is climbing a structure that's both traditional animation and cgi/render. It looks cool but jarring. As he touches the rendered part the whole thing tumbles down loony toon stylee. It was bantz shit crazy.

    7/10.

    Damn that last episode was good. That whole bit of dialogue between the monster and the bishop was pretty rad.

    I love the fact that the Vampire Killer makes every monster it touches explode just like in the games. There's a lot of tiny things that make me wonder what else is hidden.

    I'm pumped for another season.

    I binged the 4 episodes last night and I was not disappointed. The story was nicely built up and the pacing was good nothing felt too rushed. I enjoy Trevor's periodic trash talk.

    I found the fight scenes are fluid and exciting. The color pallete is appealing and the animation is not the best but not horrible either. I did notice that almost everyone's eyes glowed.

    I thought Dracula was awesome, and rightfully pissed off and taking his anger out the only way he knows how to, through demons rampaging killing everyone in his way. Love a good villain. I wished there was more gore but it was fine without more that is just my personal preference.

    The townspeople killing that asshole priest was really surprising did not expect that. But then again they were pretty gullible and swayed easily.

    Really excited for the next season. Oh and I really hope they turn out more that 4 episodes for this next season.

    This was dope as hell. I just sat back and indulged in this. Lovely fight scenes, Trevor is an entertaining protagonist, colors (other than red and light-red) were easy on the eyes, and blah blah blah

    Good shit.
